Does this rocker arm kit will fit E7 heads?

JavierS

  • The Ford Performance Roller Rocker Arm Set 1.7 Bolt On will work with E7 Pedestal mount heads. Always check Piston to valve clearance to make sure no issues arise on startup.

Would this kit work/fit well with a set of 351W heads?

OneLow5oh

  • The Ford Performance Roller Rocker Arm Set 1.7 Bolt On (79-93 5.0L) would not work with a 351W as it is not a 5.0. and this roller rocker arm set is specifically designed for a 5.0.

Rockers for Top End Build Kit Top End Engine Kit (87-93 5.0L) getting ready to purchase this kit for my Pony. I need rockers with these rockers work and will they clear? Can I use the stock push rods?

GIJim

  • Yes these will work, they are bolt in rockers not stud mount and they also work with stock length push rods. I just installed on Edelbrock heads and comp cams stock length push rods and ford racing aluminum valve covers purchased from American muscle car and worked perfectly.

    Impressed, and have piece of mind

    Out of the box I am really pleased with the quality of the part. Made by Crane for Ford with a Ford number gives me piece of mind that Im not bolting cheap imported junk inside my engine, that will get ran hard. The kit was very well packed, very complete and of course fits like a glove. Not too sure about performance gain, so my 2 stars isnt fair- engine is still out of the car...but honestly how much performance can you expect for a rocker? The ration is a bit more than stock for a little more lift and the reduction in friction can only help. The transaction, checkout and fast shipping will have me returning to American Muscle first from now on- thanks!

    Best E7 cylinder head upgrade. PERIOD

    If you stuck a cam into your 5.0 and plan to keep your E7s but you're not ready to upgrade to aftermarket heads for a couple years, this kit is a must. The package came very fast from AM (like usual!) and it was professionally protected. The inner packing actually works as a staging platform to put the rockers together. Crane's name can be seen on each rocker as well, so I know the engineering is top notch. These pedestal units assemble very easy and do come with shims just in case. Don't skimp on the package's directions--you MUST oil everything liberally, especially the rod cups. Don't take a chance with the stock length pushrods. I'd recommend getting a rod length tool from AM (I did). Thank you AM for your awesome service!!!!
